Here are just a few statements from our grateful clients who wanted to share about their experience with us…

"I recently came in and got an edgy asymmetrical haircut from Jeanie. She was confident and reassuring, as I tend to get a little nervous about new styles. I'm so glad I went for it, I've been getting tons of compliments! I love it and will definitely be back."

"Thomas Johnston, Senior Stylist, has been cutting my hair since 2009. I've always been happy with his abilities as a stylist. He understands the look I want, even when I have a difficult time explaining it. He takes the time to make sure we are both on the same page which, to me, is great. I seem to have a hard time communicating it but he always sends me away feeling very happy with what he has done. I highly recommend his talented services. Gives a great shampoo/head message too."

"John puts his heart and soul into every massage he gives. You really feel that he cares far beyond the fact that you're his client. John's techniques in massage blew me away. Trained by some of the greatest of massage legends, very few massage therapists even know about or use this style of massage. Come try it for yourself! You'll see the difference :)"
